Default My other hobby, I know I'm crazy

Now I know this is not G body or car related, just thought I'd share this again as people seemed to enjoy seeing it last year.

This is my Christmas display, the 2011 version. First night was dec 3rd and will be lighting until Christmas. All these things are hand made with little motors powering them. Several of them are actually windshield wiper motors from Saturns lol. Enjoy

The 3 bottom links are videos, examples of what can be done with a simple wiper motor and a 12 volt DC power pack
